GuideSpark Launches Robust Onboarding Solution to Engage Every New Hire
Nov 12 14
GuideSpark unveiled its video-based onboarding solution designed to boost engagement, accelerate time-to-productivity, and increase new hire satisfaction. HR teams struggle with the volume and complexity of information that must be effectively communicated to new hires--and those using traditional, more decentralized onboarding practices face employee retention challenges and a disengaged workforce. In fact, according to Human Capital Institute, 77% of new hires make the decision to stay or leave an organization within their first six months. GuideSpark's new onboarding packages offer a collection of customized videos to educate new hires on topics varying from understanding company values, benefits, payroll, health care reform, and more. Additionally, employees can access the content 24/7 on any device, and HR administrators get access to a growing collection of best practices, continual content updates, and an analytics dashboard to measure engagement.
